Ever wondered what the prayer flags are all about on mountains in Nepal and around? Fluttering gently in the breeze as you go about your life, they bless the ground you walk on and help you stay in balance with the sky, wind, water and earth. The best time of day to put a new one up is on the morning of a bright and windy day.
